Referrals from Medical Professionals

Paedspal Cape Town provides a multi-disciplinary paediatric palliative care consultative service to select public and private hospitals. Our team consists of 2 paediatricians, a medical officer, counsellor, OT and aromatherapist.

We mostly see patients in the Southern suburbs and do regular visits to Red Cross, Groote Schuur and Mowbray maternity hospitals. We do also see patients admitted to private hospitals on request but because of limited capacity and travel time prefer to provide out-patient consultations where possible.

Palliative care consultations include requests for assistance with pain and symptom control, counselling support, multi-disciplinary decision making, advance and terminal care planning. We will also advise on referrals to hospices and other community based services closer to patients homes where these are known to ourselves.
